Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
All Our Trees Are Grown In The UK
As far as we know, none of our trees have sneaked off for holidays abroad and so are UK Grown.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.
Black Spots On Leaves
Nothing to worry about, this is purely a cosmetic issue, it is usually caused by excessive moisture. Remove the affected leaves and burn ideally. Keep the moisture down (water the roots not the foliage) and prune to allow light and air into the foliage. A general purpose fungicide may help. Low air and light conditions can increase your risk e.g. planting in a fenced corner.
Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots.
Have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other issues.
